If you have been waiting to get your hands on NBA 2K21, you will not have to wait much longer as developer Visual Concepts and 2K have revealed that the current-gen demo will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on August 24th. That is just over a week before the title releases across those platforms in addition to PC and Google Stadia on September 4th, so it should be plenty of time to decide whether it is worth the purchase.
Now, to be clear, this is by no means a demo for the next-gen consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Given that neither are out yet, or even have definitive release dates, that shouldn't exactly be a surprise. Alongside the current-gen demo date, Visual Concepts also detailed a series of improvements coming to the title as well, which you can check out in the developers' blog on the subject.
